    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubEmily Dickinson understood the importance of bees She begins a poem To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee Another poem venerates the bee as part of a numinous trinityIn the name of the Bee And of the the Butterfly And of the Breeze AmenDickinson thought bees lived irresponsible and adventurous livesCarol Ann Duffy also understands the importance of bees but the cover notes of this emotion laden volume tells us that for her they car

    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubThis surprised me I think I expected bland but it isn't And what is one supposed to expect from a Poet Laureate who embodies so many 'firsts I find it witty clever and feminine which I am sure I am not meant to see but well she is a woman Beautiful language choices and actual rhythm it spoke of England though she isn't 'English'I particularly liked 'Premonitions' having spent a lot of years caring for the dying and their intimates I liked echoes of other poets especially the last line of 'Passing Bells''The old familiar clanking cow bells of the cattle'And also 'Ariel'there were many referenced Shakespeare linesOn political themes 'Big Ask' repeated my anger my disgust at the lies told about Ira'The WMDyou found the stash Well maybe n

    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubI listened to this on audiobook via my local library's serviceI'm always looking for new poetry to read so when I saw The Bees I decided to give Carol's writing a try Don't be fooled by the title there's a diverse range of topics included in the collection such as recollections of WW1 Carol narrated herself which for the majority of the listen I did enjoy However there was some disconnect which I do put down to not reading the physical book uick interesting I look forward to giving poems a try

    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubI have heard of Carol Ann Duffy as Poet Laureate she is probably the highest profile poet in the UK at the moment But until now have never read a single poem of hers so was looking forward to thisThe Bees is not a collection of poems just about the small insect but the bee features in some of the poems or merely brushes by the poem Her subjects are diverse in this collection from the First World war to Oxfam and as diverse as the hive to snow with several about the beesOne thing that impresses me about Duffy is her mastery of the English language With startling brevi

    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubGood but not good enoughThe trouble with being a poet laureate is being a poet laureate you have to be representative of all the race meaning both of your country and of its tribe of poets But if you must speak for the nation how can you speak for yourself I think that Carol Anne Duffy’s poetry collection The Bees must be interpreted in this context The task facing any established mainstream English language poetry today and that is the type of poetry I should be understood to be talking about in the rest of this review is to juggle 1 mandatory social and political attitudes with 2 a mastery of the accepted creating writing program techniues for writing verse and 3 a style sufficiently different from everyo

    The Bees MOBI ê Hardcover bees mobile, The Bees EpubI found this collection a bit of a bumpy ride if I'm honest References to bees are not surprisingly dispersed through the book and there is a poem The Bees which opens the collection and in a way that poem summed up my overall impression of the whole collectionThere are moments here that I thought were absolutely magnificent I've little to no technical understanding but it seems to me that when she is on her game Carol Ann Duffy is an absolute master of her craft The poem The Bees felt like a short introduction to the buzzing words to come and to the way the words had almost been drawn nectar like from somewhere within the poet's soul to be transported to the page And there's a real feel of the hither and thither about those first two verses they crackle with energy and vitality What I loved about them was the way they appeared almost like random buzz words and phrases on first read but on subseuent reads they feel like there's a purpose and structure and destination to all their
